It has almost been a year since historic Winter Storm Uri caused a massive failure to ERCOT’s power supply. What’s changed? Join us to learn more about the ERCOT changes and their effects on the market. We will cover how the ERCOT Operating Reserve Demand Curve (ORDC) functions and contextualize the magnitude of the change ordered by the PUCT that went into effect Jan. 1, 2022.

  • Understand the purpose of the ORDC and the ordered change
  • Look back on how the change would have impacted generation financial outcomes from 2019-2020
  • Analyze current results post-change and predict future scarcity based on Enverus’ forecasts and market reports
